Top 10 Books of 2015

It’s that time of the year again where we look back and pay homage to all the books that left me feeling awed, curled up in a ball crying or wondering what next I would do with my life since I’d finished the book.

In no particular order here are Infinity Reads’ Top 10 Books of 2015

NOTE: The book titles link to my reviews if you’re interested

All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven 

Perhaps the first book I’ve ever read that tackled mental illness and got me interested into reading diversity.  All the Bright Places was beautiful in all the delicate ways it handled mental illness and created unforgettable characters. And there’s a movie happening!

Winter by Marissa Meyer

The epic conclusion to The Lunar Chronicles series. It was 800 pages of every emotion I could ever imagine from pride to joy to hatred.

Heir of Fire by Sarah.J.Maas

This book was, with lack of a better word to describe it, on fire. There was so much adrenaline and character development.

The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly by Stephanie Oakes 

Another unique book that explored issues such as blind faith and painted such a brutal world in all its goriness.

An Ember in The Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

An epic fantasy read that was exotic, smart and a great start to what I believe will be an epic series.

Afterworlds by Scott Westerfield 

Another unique book. Gosh 2015 was a year of trying new things wasn’t it. I highly enjoyed the concept of a book within a book and the supernatural elements were very cool.

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margarot Atwood

Okay I need to stop saying this. But this book was also very unique. It evokes thinking in the reader about issues such as feminism and oppression and women’s place in society.

Am I normal Yet? by Holly Bourne

A recent read this also tackled mental illness but in a more honest, down to Earth manner. The protagonist has one of the most distinct and memorable voices that I’ve ever heard.

The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan 

Of course it won’t be a top 10 without Uncle Rick making an appearance. Back with the same old witty humour, education on mythology and unforgettable characters The Sword of Summer is the beginning of one epicly funny series about Vikings.

Queen of Shadows by Sarah.J.Maas

Another epic book in the Throne of Glass series with all its plot twists, unique characters and fantastic elements.

What are some of your favourite reads of 2015?
